The Nittany Lions escaped Iowa City with a five-set win Saturday night.
Clifford's premature exit left him with a 37% completion percentage, but Drew Allar did not fare much better.
The Nittany Lions gave up 418 rushing yards to Michigan in Saturday's loss.
Sean Clifford led the team in rushing yards with 74, while Nick Singleton, Kaytron Allen, and Keyvone Lee combined for just 41.
The Nittany Lions' first loss of the season came in dominating fashion Saturday afternoon.
We hope you like Big Noon Kickoff, folks!
